Crowell & Moring's Government Contracts Group Named to Law360's "Practice Groups of the Year" for Fifth Consecutive Year
Washington, D.C. – January 9, 2015: Crowell & Moring LLP is pleased to announce that its Government Contracts Group has been named to Law360's "Practice Groups of the Year" listing for Government Contracts for the fifth straight year. For this listing, Law360 recognizes "firms that came through for their clients in 2014, sealing the big deals and winning the high-stakes suits."
The profile highlighting Crowell & Moring notes that the firm's "government contracts group is widely heralded as an industry go-to, and the firm's recent wins for Lockheed Martin Corp. in a closely watched $400 million qui tam suit and BAE Systems PLC in a highly technical bid protest further cemented that dominance."
Among the highlights, Law360 notes that while the firm "was built as a government contracts-centric firm when it was founded in 1979… The firm's relatively recent founding, coupled with its quick ascent, means it holds layers of generational and institutional knowledge, from lawyers who grew with Crowell from the ground up to newly minted associates just cutting their teeth."
Co-chair of the firm's Government Contracts Group Daniel R. Forman remarked, "We have partners who you would consider to be deans of the bar, but we also have counsel and senior associates who have more experience than partners in most other government contracts practices." Fellow co-chair Angela B. Styles added, "We're continually able to serve clients with the right lawyer, right experience, right skill set."
When asked about the significance of the Lockheed matter, Los Angeles-based Government Contracts Group partner Mark R. Troy said, "The issue in the case, the notion that a cost estimate could be a false claim, was something that really had not been addressed in an FCA case before."
